Your First Time
First time I ever came to SHQ, was about 4 days after the Australian release of Sonic Adventure 2. I had just finished Last Side story, and was surfing the net for some cool images of Shadow and some mp3s of the tracks, like Throw It All Away.

The first site to come up on Google, was a site named sonichq.org. I clicked on it, and was impressed by the proffesionlism of the site. Then I noticed a link towards the bottom of the page. It lead right here. I came up with the name of HyperShadowHedgehog, as I thought Shadow was so bad-ass.

Soon, I noticed that a lot of people had more unique names rather than some blatant Shadow rip off, so I went back to my sketch books where I found an old concept sketch of a Sonic fan-character I created. I polished it up a bit, refined it design wise (Such as adding stripes and upward curving quills as a homage to Shadow), and began a new account that went by the name of GyserHog. Someone else already had Gyser... >>

The rest is history my friends.

That's what the Mobius Forums do for me. Roxorz my soxorz.


The People
Well, I could list so many people, but people would get left out, and I'd hate to do that, so I'm just gonna give shout-outs to my two man bros.

Spon & Spiner.

All the people here, for better or for worse, make an impact, and the way this place is now, I wouldn't change.


The Future
Take things as they come man. Never plan for the future, for you could be dissapointed.

When was the first time you came to Sonic HQ? What brought you here? If you're one of the oldheads - what do you think has kept you here for so long? If you're a lurker, what do you think has made you stick around? If you're not either, what do you think so far?

Well, in about May 2002 I discovered Sonic HQ because I was looking for specific character bios for a friend of mine. I saw "community" and went "Hmm..." so I checked it out. About four months later, I actually got an account and began posting. ^^ One of the reasons I think I've stayed around so long is....like many people before have said, the general atmosphere is appealing, the people are great, the mods and admins make sure this place runs smoothly without being too incredibly overbearing. ^^



The Mobius Forum - We all say that this place is pretty special to us - but why do we say that? What makes the Forum special to you? The ability to adapt to any obstacle its been handed, the people, the humor? What is YOUR DEFINITION of the Mobius Forum and why does it hold a place in your heart?

The Mobius Forum is special to me because it holds many memories, both experiences with the board and with people on the board. ^^ And I can't forget its liveliness both in board activity and forumer personality.



The People - What people do you remember the most? What arguments do you remember the most? What theme week do you remember the most? Of all of the people - both forumers and staffers - who do you feel is the person who has impacted you the most on this forum?

Hoo boy, that's a lot of people o.o It seems everybody here has in some way impacted my life in a positive way. There are a few people, however, who I feel deserve a little mention ^^
Craig, for being a truly great person and always being there despite time zone differences, and for introducing me to the greatest band of all time =D
Sonikita, for being a friend when I first came to the boards
SilverShadow, for always being a blast to talk to ^^
Weirdo, for introducing me to the AIM chats and for being such a nice person all the time ^^
Global Nexus, for always being there to listen when I have a problem ^^;

Theme weeks....oh dear.... XD That one would have to be the Fexusfan one in 2002. It appeared about a month after I started posting and it nearly scared me away the first time I saw it. But look at me now, I'm his official cheerleader o.o



The Future - What would you like to see achieved by SHQ and the Mobius Forum in the future? How has your future been affected by things that have already happened?

I'd like to see people not get so worked up over little things so easily o.o; But other than that, I dunno.... ^^; I can't predict the future, nor would I like to. I like to just stay back and let the future come to me. ^_^


And er...yeah. **post!**

Since none of you people know me, I see this as an excellent opportunity to introduce myself.

1. My First Time-I first visited Sonic HQ last March, when I was looking for a Sonic site on Google. I got interested in Sonic HQ and decided to check out the forums. At first I only visited South Island Forum, but eventually I decided to visit the rest of the site. I never posted because I never had anything to say, and if I did, I was too shy to say it. But I kept coming back because of all the humor and intelligence this site has.

2. My definition of the Mobius Forum-One of the few message boards available where people can have a meaningful conversation without swearing or posting like idiots.

3. People I remember the most:

Craig and Shadow Hog, because they always had something to say, whether it be smart, funny, or just plain weird (LBT, I'm looking at you),

Cookirini and Shadow Lady, because of their sheer insanity and humor,

TheCycle, because of his excellent debating skills, and because he was pretty much a cool guy in general,

VCP, because of his funny smartass comments ("That's a condom advertisement waiting to happen."),

and many others I forgot to mention (Rico, Xagarath, WB, Dr. L, Samanfur, CJ...pretty much everyone, actually).

4. The Future-The only thing I'd like to see in the future is the return of the Mr. T theme. Oh, and I hope to enjoy my stay here.

The First Time

Well, I had popped into SHQ as a site occasionly, but only for completly random things (can't remember what) but one day my brain suddenly whent "Let's become majorly obsessive about Sonic all of a sudden." So I did. And after a while I started searching for scans of StC in pining for it, and wound up in the special zone forum, and after pootling around in there a bit, my brain went of on a tangent to one of the topics, I got an account, and started posting.

I never got round to actually reading those scans o.o

The Mobius Forum

Tricky, I'm tempted to go with subliminal messages in the themes, but...

I think it's just because it's such a nice place to be, and populated with such nice people, also, the insanity is great, I can completly wander off at 90 degrees to reality and nobody even looks twice^^ It has something for everyone, and a good slice of that juicey pie we call life cut up into seperate bitesize chunks filled with cherry, uh, I mean, discussion. It sorta sticks to the front of my brain and refuses to let go, and that's the way I love it^^

The People

Ack, well, I hate name dropping, but the ones who most come to mind are: Craig, who seems to be grafted into the MoFo by his soul =P Bentleee, whom started the first Rp I ever joined, is a great artist on DA and is my best online friend. Pachamac, another great Rper and artist. Shadow Lady and Arrowhead, for sheer insanity levels and being great fun. Shinobi, Robo and TUL also stand out, and Shadow Hog, Cookirini, Chibibecca and Vortex, all of whom make me giggle with many of their posts^^

The Future

Well, personally, two goals. 1) Attend a meet up
2) Participate in a GM properly <.<;

Other than that, I think the last line of Craig's answer to this applies^^-
Pictures are words in disguise, and words are pictures at heart.

Your first time

I remember, I came to South Island through the links on SHQ around early August 2001 figured out ezybread in about a month, and stayed there another month before I knew there were forums besides it. I'm not really an oldhead but probably just the general atmosphere kept me around.


The Mobius Forum

Place of insanity, The place where nobody is probably ever going to read your Answers of the Week.


The People

I remember Sam, Cycle, Acrio, True Red, a bit of Rico, Cj, definetly Lighthead, Cooki, and Craig, oh, I argued with Blue Gale alot, before he was PBG (must admit a was kind of an ass in those), ooh, and Shemar, UTH, and Various others from Sandopolis (the old SPA).

When Rad Blue took over and made the school theme? Wow, that was torture.


The Future

Er... Keep it up?-sonicmax

I've had a lifelong obsession with sonic, and I've lurked around here for several years. I'm starting to frequent the place now because an old board I used to spend a lot of time on is getting stupid. I'm starting to really like it here though, the people are nice.

My first time: Replying to the US/Aids/Third world thread brought to my attention by another forum I frequent. I kinda stuck around after that because of the points of view that abound.

The Mobius Forum: This place maintains a delicate balance of freedom and regulation that is hard to beat. This is mostly due to very adept moderators and regular forumers willing to toss around ideas. And occasionally some really weird stuff get's posted. Some gross, some interesting....

The People: Most influential, pretty much the usual crowd that generally disagrees (and sometimes agrees) with me; TheCycle, Samanfur, Trimanus, Robobotnik (I usually forget to add the second bo to the name, guess my fingers need retraining) Sonic HQ, they have always done their best to present their point of view in a clear manner with obvious logic behind it. Intelligent people saying intelligent things. I appreciate the level of clarity that they put into their posts.

The Future: I have no specific wants for the future of MoFo, except that the excellence continue. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

What a brave new world that has such people in it.

I came just before March Break. I was surfing Sagey's site and I saw the link to MoFo, and thought, heck why not? So here I am.

The MoFo is special because you can do anything and people will just say, "Cool, let's add Jaffa to the fire!" My definition is a place where you can do anything you want, as long as you censor the swearing.

The person I remember the most would hafta be Sagey. The arguement that I remember the most is the one where we were arguing about whether or not pouring happy juice on somebody wastes it.

I would like them to CHANGE MF CENTRAL BACK. This place has really affected my life, cuz I spend almost every afternoon on.

Since siggys aren't allowed, LONG LIVE THE PURPLE TREE!
